"Cope" chops are the creation of my long-time radio buddy, Marc Coppola, who is heard here in Providence, RI mid-days at our sister station B-101, and on stations throughout the country. Cope and I started in radio at WBAB on Long Island back in the early 80's. He had the afternoon drive shift, and I was on after him from 7 to midnight. After his show, Cope would remove a hibachi grill out of the trunk of his car, light some charcoal in the radio station parking lot, and he'd grill up the most amazing pork chops I've ever had. They were thin, but juicy and beautifully charred, with a wonderful saltiness. He called 'em Cope chops, and we'd eat them by the stack, wrapping the hot bone of the chop with a paper towel, and then just chowing down. It was a great memory, and one that I regularly re-live by grilling Cope chops at home even today.

Here's a post from my friends at Firefly Farms in CT about the dangers of soy. It is not a safe protein source. They don't feed it to their animals and you shouldn't feed it to your family.
Nothing's better than the hint of smokiness you get when you roast clams on the grill. Just have a tray of herbs and butter ready on the side, and drop them in as they open.
